Flying city

‘Flying city’, russian architect Georgy Krutikov’s graduate project, 1928.

It reminds me of the Soviet science fiction 0f 30s-40s ( esp. Belyaev’s ‘Jump into the void’), Zamyatin’s dystopia ‘We’ and Svift’s the flying island of Laputa. But most of all I like the boldness of ‘the flying city’ project – to think of such things when even simple air flight was a huge risk.
